Meet SuzieQ -


Meet my new little "Brother" -

Sewing machine, that is - ;))



I named her SuzieQ -

She’s a Brother SQ-9050 -


You can read all about her - here -

Yeah, I know -

Because she’s a “Brother” -

You think that she’s a boy -

And you’re thinking that I named her Sue -

Like in the Johnny Cash song - “A Boy named Sue” -

But I think the company put the “SQ” in her name -

So that I could call her SuzieQ - ;))

She’s just a cheapo from Walmart - here -

But she has more features than my fancy one - go figure - ;))

She came with an extension table -


A walking foot - a FMQ spring foot - 1/4” foot - and a quilting guide -


And all for $200 -

Of course, I was looking for something else at the time - ;))

And did you notice that her model number starts with SQ - like in SQuirrel?? - ;))

I swear - they are EVERYWHERE!! - ;))

Tell you more about her -

After I get to know her better - ;))



Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

As a side note -
I bought mine at a brick-and-mortar Walmart - NOT online -
If you want one - and the store doesn’t have one in stock -
Have them order it for you -
I wouldn’t recommend ordering it online -
I’ve had trouble with their site - ;))

  1. My name is Sue....How do you do????? I'm sure you are going to have a lot of fun with her. Priscilla (I think she is Suzie Q's cousin) is a Brother and the machine I had before Vivian Westwood was a Brother. Nice machines.

  2. I have had a couple Brother machines and really liked them. My most recent 'little' Brother was gifted to my DGD, Kari. I tend to sell my newer machines when I want to 'upgrade' but have recently been thinking maybe I need to sell my older machines (I do have a few)

    1. I was/am amazed at the features on this little thing - more than my "fancy" machine that I bought ten years ago for 8 times the price!! It's an "upgrade" feature-wise - but the price was/is not out of range like most of the "upgrade" models out there - ;))

  3. You and Suzy Q have fun getting acquainted! Congrats!

    One of my first machines was a cheapie Brother (one that I purchased, not my mom's old Kenmore in a cabinet) It did well till I seriously got into quilting. Then I needed more toys, LOL.

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
